University of Michigan Alumni Association

2017-18 Scholarship Program

Each April, the UMCGC awards several scholarships to financially eligible students from the Chicago area, either those currently attending the University for undergraduate studies or those who will be enrolling at the University in the fall. In 2016, we awarded scholarships to five current and future University of Michigan students from the Chicago area, which were selected from an outstanding pool of over 80 applicants. Since 2009, the UMCGC has awarded 59 students with over $250,000 in scholarship funds!


UMCGC scholarships are non-renewable (i.e., they are only for the upcoming academic year). All four-year undergraduate students (including those who may have received one or more scholarships in previous years) who are academically and financially eligible may apply for a scholarship. The number of scholarships we award each year varies depending upon the amount of money currently available for distribution and the need that currently exists.
